Marian motet from Sacrorum concentuum, Venice, 1594.
Lyrics: Anon

Gaude Maria Virgo, cunctas haereses sola interemisti.
Quae Gabrielis archangeli dictis, credidisti.
Dum Virgo Deum et hominem genuisti:
et post partum Virgo inviolata permansisti.

Rejoice, O Virgin Mary, for thou singly hast confounded all heresies.
Thou didst believe the words of the archangel Gabriel.
Whilst a virgin, thou didst bear God and man,
and after his birth thou didst remain an inviolate virgin.
